Frank Bello and Charvel’s Lethal Pet Project

Frank Bello has served as Anthrax’s bassist for decades, and now you can capture some of his low-end chemistry for yourself with the Frank Bello Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Bass from Charvel. Charvel’s Frank Bello Pro-Mod is packed with hot-rod features including premium tonewoods and powerful active EMG electronics for guaranteed dangerous tone. And while this bass is a powerhouse of tone, it’s also a supremely comfortable instrument with a lightweight poplar body, a satin-finished maple neck, and Charvel’s thinnest neck carve the Speed Neck. If you’re after a sleek yet brutal bass, we suggest you put the Charvel Frank Bello Signature Pro-Mod So-Cal Bass at the top of your list.

Active EMG electronics

The only acceptable electronics for Frank Bello’s signature bass are his signature pickups from EMG. This active P/J pickup set yields incredible headroom, while ensuring super-low noise even at high gain settings. The neck pickup serves up measured warmth and low-end thump, while the bridge pickup supplies tight mids and dynamic high-end with a more present attack. With these two options, you’re ready for any speed or style of metal at a moment’s notice.

Form meets function

This bass’ fearsome profile is inspired by vintage Californian designs but outfitted with modern amenities for a classic look with a contemporary feel. Premium hardware includes a Charvel HiMass bridge for improved sustain and resonance, chrome tuners for marathon tuning stability, and a reinforced string tree that grants upper strings some extra support. A classic maple neck with a natural fingerboard adds a bold touch of color, yet feels incredibly smooth with Charvel’s thinnest neck profile, the compound radius Speed Neck. This neck’s skinny down-low feeling and flatter, fuller sensation up high make it a great all-purpose neck for expressive metal players who aren’t afraid to venture up the neck for riffs, solos, and bends.

Charvel Pro-Mod Series

Charvel’s Pro-Mod series guitars rock classic Charvel style, born in Southern California more than three decades ago. These axes are packed with the hot-rodded, high-performance features artists rely on: classic body styles, premium tonewoods; unfinished oiled necks; smooth, rolled fingerboard edges; scorching pickups; rock-solid bridges; and more.
